The Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict receives core funding from The Oxford Martin School. The School was founded in 2005 to develop strategies for responding to some of the most serious problems facing humanity. The focus of the School is on stimulating Oxford's research, by giving the University's scholars the resources and space to think imaginatively about the problems and the opportunities that the future will bring.

Centre for International Studies (CIS)

CIS seeks to foster a wide range of approaches to research, much of it interdisciplinary. It has become one of the largest centres in Europe for advanced research in international relations on topics within the broader themes of global governance and international peace and security. ELAC is a research programme within the Centre for International Studies.

The Carnegie Council's mission is to be the voice for ethics in international policy. It convenes agenda-setting forums and creates educational opportunities and information resources for a worldwide audience of teachers and students, journalists, international affairs professionals, and concerned citizens. Dr David Rodin is a Carnegie-Uehiro Senior Fellow.

The Asia-Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect's mission is to advance the Responsibility to Protect principle within the Asia-Pacific Region and worldwide, and support the building of capacity to protect populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. The Centre funds the ELAC project: 'The Responsibility to Prevent – Developing Ad hoc and Systemic Strategies'

The Changing Character of War (CCW) programme is devoted to the interdisciplinary study of war and conflict. CCW is located in the Faculty of History and is a cooperative effort with the Centre for International Studies and the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics. Research covers a wide range of issues surrounding the history of armed conflict in the modern period. In 2011/12, its research priorities are the history of counterinsurgency and colonial wars, the history of the laws of warfare and the changing relationship between war and the state.

The Human Rights for Future Generations (HRFG) is an interdisciplinary research programme that aims to contribute to academic and policy thinking on the human rights dimensions of poverty, armed conflict and environmental change. Drawing on the disciplines of law, philosophy, and international relations, the programme investigates the existing normative, legal and institutional human rights framework to face these challenges. This project aims to advance a new framework built on ethical, legal and political dimensions that will help translate theory into real legal and policy solutions on these issues
